Thanks. John Prine and Justin Townes Earle on Friday should be good. Looks like Justin will be back in the spring to open for Dwight Yoakem (that's not a solid lock yet).

And forumites that look me up at our shows, via an email and/or post here, will get looked after - drink coupons, etc.

No shameless plug for Matt the Electrician? First saw him in Austin, now a big fan. Great musician/singer/songwriter with a wonderful folksy demeanor. Tells stories through his songs like Prine and his raspy voice sounds a bit like him, too. Wish I could be there.

I'm really happy to hear you say that.[see you write that?] Matt is originally from Pacific Grove (PG High alum) and the first show that my partner in the theatre ever put on was a Matt show when they were both 16. He played the Alternative Cafe many, many times and we're going to be working with him on some "Austin in Monterey" shows (Hayes Carll, James McMurtry, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Slaid Cleaves, etc). The link on our site has the video that his wife directed; he's a really, really great guy.

After a Saxon show some years ago I ran into him in the parking lot selling CD's. In my usual drunken haze I asked him for a copy of his 'best' CD. I immediately realized what a dumbass request it was, but ever gracious Matt just laughed out loud and handed me a copy of One Thing Right, saying "I think this one's pretty good". Great guy, indeed.
